Throughout the month of October, the Joan Derryberry Art Gallery will feature Bulgarian visual artist Boryana Rusenova-Ina’s work.
She will speak during a reception at 4:30 p.m. on Oct. 25.
Rusenova-Ina creates her paintings by first constructing a diorama of the scene she wishes to paint and then works off that model to create a scene both familiar and surreal. She frequently focuses on landscapes and urban scenes, aiming to ask her audiences questions about identity and home.
She is currently a lecturer in painting and drawing at Ohio State University. Her art has been displayed throughout the United States and Europe.
The event is made possible by Center Stage, a series of events, guest artists, lectures and performances in an effort to promote a better understanding of the fine arts and diverse cultural perspectives. It is made possible through Tennessee Tech’s general education fund.
The event is free and open to the public.
